I got a new scanner and am trying to get acquainted when H70 departs so I can catch it, so wondering if the scanner will notify me or not... thx! - PhilZ
Spoke with an NS guy this weekend. They aren't permitted to use their cell phones. They call the yardmaster on the radio, then the yardmaster calls NJT on the phone for the signals.

The Hoboken Division uses a different kind of PTC. All NS units with PTC are compatible with it.

Is it that IETMS or whatever it is that NS uses on the Hoboken Division?
